Gentamicin Vestibulotoxicity: Further Insights From a Large Clinical Series

Objective: To review insights gained from a 21-year experience with gentamicin-induced vestibulotoxicity including differences in vestibulotoxicity between single daily dosing (SDD) and multiple daily dosing (MDD) regimens. Study Design: Retrospective case series. Setting: Tertiary care center. Patients: Patients with gentamicin vestibulotoxicity...

Comparison of Perimodiolar Electrodes: Imaging and Electrophysiological Outcomes

Background: The perimodiolar CI532 Slim Modiolar electrode has been designed to bring the electrode contacts close to auditory nerve while reducing cochlear trauma during its insertion. It is currently unknown to what extent the electrode position and electrophysiological outcomes of the Slim Modiolar electrode differ from other perimodiolar electrodes. ...

Electrocochleography and Cochlear Implantation: A Systematic Review

Objective: Given the heterogeneity of papers about electrocochleography (ECochG) and cochlear implantation (CI) and the absence of a systematic review in the current literature, the aim of this work was to analyze the uses of ECochG in the different stages of CI. Data Sources: A search of PubMed from inception to December 8, 2019, with cross-references,...

Nitinol in Passive Ossicular Reconstruction—First Results From Temporal Bone Experiments

Hypothesis: Nitinol is a suitable material for passive middle ear prosthesis. Background: In modern ear microsurgery, the restitution of hearing is tremendously important. In passive ossicular reconstruction, rigid alloplastic materials are widespread in use. However, rigid prostheses fail to adapt to atmospheric pressure changes. We describe...

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation for Treatment of Tinnitus: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Objective: To evaluate the treatment efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in patients with tinnitus. Data Sources: PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library were searched for the following concepts: “Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation” and “Tinnitus.” Study Selection: Inclusion: 1) double- or...

Transcriptome Analysis of Deafness: Intracellular Signal Transduction Signaling Pathways Regulate Neuroplastic Changes in the Auditory Cortex

Hypothesis and Background: Hearing loss leads to synaptic changes in auditory neurons and their networks, and functions as a consequence of the interplay between genes and proteins. However, cellular and molecular mechanisms leading to deafness-induced plasticity in the auditory cortex (AC) remain unclear. Here, we examined the changes in gene expression...

Early Feasibility Studies of Augmented Reality Navigation for Lateral Skull Base Surgery

Hypothesis: An augmented reality (AR) platform using a head mounted display (HMD) can successfully display and register virtual computerized tomography (CT) data to corresponding real world anatomy using fiducial markers. Background: AR is a growing field in surgical planning, and has been used by this group to aide in orthopedic surgery applications....

Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography for Evaluation of Success of Tympanoplasty

Objective: After tympanoplasty, it is often challenging to differentiate between different causes of a remaining air bone gap (ABG). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) offers a new approach for combined morphologic and functional measurements of the tympanic membrane and adjacent parts of the middle ear. Thus, it provides valuable diagnostic information...
